Tibet : journey to the forbidden city : retracing the steps of Alexandra David-Néel by Tiziana Baldizzone( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Born in Paris in 1868, Alexandra David-Neel spent some thirteen years traveling though China and Tibet, walking unknown routes, discovering and photographing new cultures and people, and exploring their traditions and religious beliefs. "The land of the gentleman brigands" was the name she gave to an area in the far west of China, populated by fierce and dangerous tribes, through which she traveled several times in her attempts to reach Lhasa, the Forbidden City of Tibet." "Today, Alexandra David-Neel's photographs and the written accounts of her expeditions remain as testimony to her courage. But as she wrote at the time, she regretted that her pictures "would not convey the true colors of this wonderful land." Some 70 years later, photographers Tiziana and Gianni Baldizzone traveled to Tibet to discover for themselves this fascinating land, to visit the same tribes, and to photograph the people and the landscapes - to "give color" to the impressions of Alexandra David-Neel. With more than 145 stunning illustrations, their book is a celebration of color, showing in marvelous detail the panoramic landscapes, the faces and expressions of individual people, and the splendid decoration of the costumes, as elaborate today as in the 1920s. This photographic pilgrimage journeys through both time and space to a land rarely seen by Western eyes."--Jacket

A matter of fashion : 20 iconic items that changed the history of style ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When it comes to fashion, the term "icon" is almost invariably associated with a person: a man or, more often, a woman whose style has left a mark on the collective imagination. And yet, there are also objects that have the same extraordinary evocative power, items of clothing or accessories which, in different ways, have revolutionized the history of fashion. The birth of the Burberry trench coat, flat pumps or Givenchy's little black dress were milestones after which nothing was ever the same. Each designer, label or fast-fashion manufacturer has had to come to terms with fashion icons' existence, by quoting or revisiting them, or simply by copying creations that have now become classics. Some of these are even known by their original name, like the Kelly bag and Borsalino hats. Others, over the years, have also gained sociopolitical connotations (Levi's jeans, for example, which were once workwear, became a symbol of the Sixties youth revolution), while others, such as Hermès scarves and Chanel No.5 perfume, continue to be status symbols
